How does personification differ from metaphor? (Especially when comparing trees to humans)
Question for Adam B. Garfield-Turner:
Personification gives human characteristics, such as the ability of the fives senses, to non human things.

a metaphor is like a hidden meaning with in a statement or text, meaning one thing but saying another
